Kindle The Damned –

Ted some BastienCeline smut lol Or makeouts at leastUnfortunately that part was lacking I mean when the makeouts did like makeouts leastUnfortunately that part was lacking I mean when the makeouts did it was deliciously steamy but the problem is that The Damned tries to et bigger and wilder with the plot and the result is an odd mishmash of mythologies and supernatural creatures There is so much wishy washy paranormal info about vampires werewolves enchantresses ethereals but none of it had much depth Also the first 150 pages of this book were a struggle because they consist of moving through different POVs and talking about what they want but can t have and what they don t remember and mysterious dark plans that they can t tell you about evil laugh Nothing actually Happens Though And When It Does Happen though And when it does happen all hits at once in a seemingly random stream of supernatural occurrences That part where one minute they are in New Orleans and literally the next minute they are in Maharashtra visiting the Lady of the Vale Three Brothers: Memories of My Family gave me whiplash I predicted correctly that Celine Michael and Bastien would end up in some faux love triangle One where Michael is clearly the third wheel and never a realistic candidate for Celine s heart making any romantic scene between the two of them boring because there s absolutely no tension or excitement This is paranormal YA is she reallyoing to pick the safe boring detective over the sexy naughty vampire What do YOU thinkThe secondary characters overall were kinda bland even this book s villain Everything is built up around Celine and Bastien so I was indifferent to the other characters subplots and betrayalsFor some reason I had assumed this was a duology perhaps because Ahdieh s previous books were but it is clearly left open for a seuel Given the way this resolved I am thinking the next book will be of the same so I will probably ive it a missFacebook Instagram. N patiently waiting for this moment for centuries And just as Bastien and Celine begin to uncover the danger around them they learn their love could tear them apart New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns with the second installment of her new sumptuous sultry and romantic series The Beautiful. Loved the beautiful so much and I don t even know what the point of this story was It didn t have the incredible characters the lush writing was missing the historical elements of the stunning city of new orleans was missing the mystery was one there were zero stakes and I m SAD in the worse missing the mystery was one there were zero stakes and I m SAD in the worse possible this is absolute oing to be on my worst of the year list and After that ending of The Beautiful there was no way I was oing to skip this oneI love love loved Celine in this one She s experienced even and stands stronger than ever I She s experienced even and stands stronger than ever I her tenacity and refusal to be placated Bastian is even intriguing this time around I was captivated reading him figure out how he moves forward And again I could Have Done With 5000% OdettePlot Wise It done with 5000% OdettePlot wise it a bit info dumpy in the beginning but I relished finally knowing the backstory of everything Once things ot The Dead Duke, His Secret Wife, and the Missing Corpse going there were reveals and false trails and I was here for all of my seconduessing I will say that the ending felt very unfinished and I m hoping there will be another book I ve been told from several people that it s 聖☆おにいさん 3 going to be multiple books but haven t seen an official announcementOverall I loved Ren e s take on vampires and will absolutely read anything she puts her name onHuge thanks to GP Putnam s Sons BFYR for providing the arc free of charge Did Renee Ahdieh sell her soul to the devil toet the most beautiful covers ever Sadly this seuel is like The Beautiful but with nowhere near enough sexy vampness to keep it thrillingTo be fair I thought The Beautiful was only okay I ave it three stars It was a bit of mindless entertainment and I m a sucker ha pun for sexy vampires let s be honest But the world itself was uite weak the setting felt nothing like 1872 and the whole supernatural politics aspect was not interesting to me With this book I really just wan. Ecovering from injuries sustained during a night she can’t uite remember her dreams are troubled And she doesn’t know she has inadvertently set into motion a chain of events that could lead to her demise and unveil a truth about herself she’s not uite ready to learn Forces hiding in the shadows have bee. The Damned155 starsso weird that the standalone the beautiful somehow has a seuel sounds fake to meif you would have told me that the seuel to one of my favorite books of 2019 was oing to suck this bad ha I would not have believed you I Don T Even Know don t even know to say save that this literally felt like

completely different book all the I loved in the first did not have the same charm and allure as they did in the beautiful bastien who I LOVED was the most annoying character as he Was Constantly Whining His constantly whining his went from a charismatic swoon worthy love interest to boneless elena Summerland gilbert in 300 pages celine one of my fav characters of ALL of 2019 was out of character through the WHOLE BOOK because she had amnesia for most of it she was SUCH a strong and beautiful character who brought so much light to the first book to see her reduced to a shell of a person with minimal page time was so so disappointing a true crime and don t evenet me started on her lineage okay michael was also SO BORINGGGGGG and I loved him and celine too their banter was so cute and I was hoping this series would have Goodbye Stranger given me the love triangle I m craving this book not only butchered the characters I already loved but also added perspectives of characters I couldn t care less about WHY did theyet chapter perspectives but celine couldn t have a personality make it make sense this book s plot and the way the story Plan Your WorkWork Your Plan goes is the biggest mess of 2020 I was a big defender of the beautiful when people said there weren t enough vampires but with THE DAMNED they were NOT enough vampires I was hoping we wereoing to et lore history but instead of polishing an aspect of the book that was left with a lot of mystery the author decided to bring in 5 other mythical beings with eually shallow world building UGH I m so freaking upset about this book Following the events of The Beautiful Sébastien Saint Germain is now cursed and forever changed The treaty between the Fallen and the Brotherhood has been broken and war between the immortals seems imminent The price of loving Celine was costly But Celine has also paid a high price for loving Bastien Still
